Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 04/2019

Based on the worldwide best-selling children's books of the same title, MEIN LOTTA-LEBEN is the snotty and funny story of 11-year-old Lotta's chaotic, crazy life. Her mum's into Ayurvedic cooking and works in a meditation studio. Dad is mostly grumpy and her stupid brothers annoy her all day. Luckily, she has a best friend, Cheyenne. But when class snob Berenike throws a big party and invites everyone except Lotta and Cheyenne, it's war! The two girls come up with plan after plan, but not even the idea of bringing the famous singer Marlon with them works out. It comes to an argument and the two friends fall out. But Lotta would not be Lotta if she didn't succeed in saving the friendship with Cheyenne and, so doing, learning what true friendship means.
